Title: Transforming Science Studies through Collaborative Informatics Approaches and Infrastructure
Lead Author: Laubichler, Manfred D
Abstract: Abstract Science Studies, including History and Philosophy of Science (HPS), are fundamental for understanding science and what makes it work. However, HPS has typically involved isolated projects, only occasionally collaboratively, digitally and widely accessibly. New informatics approaches are changing the scope and scale of analysis, enabling collaborations, changing underlying conceptions of knowledge, and enabling deeper integration, including connections with scientific communities. Digital HPS therefore (a) transforms HPS scholarship and use, (b) transforms understanding of how science works, and (c) impacts policy and education decision-makers where understanding how science works is crucial. Taking full advantage of these possibilities requires investment in sustainable informatics approaches and infrastructure that NSF has not traditionally supported. Science Studies and HPS will need funding to research, build, and maintain informatics infrastructure and its own synthesis center(s) that can (a) integrate results of individual research projects, (b) transform understanding of the scientific process, both historical/philosophical as well as social/technological, and (c) respond to broader impact needs of Science in Society, Science of Science Policy, and History and Nature of Science connected with Science Education. We propose a series of workshops to move quickly toward building capacity through informatics and infrastructure development in Science Studies.
